    Default Apple - let us use USB camera on iChatAV!!!


    This has got to be one of the most frustrating things I have had with
    Apple since I made the great switch to OS X. I have been waiting for
    this program for 2 years and suddenly they say that the only way for it
    to work is with a FIREWIRE CAMERA?!?!?!

    I have USB iKritter camera that works great with iVISIT. WHY can't Apple
    do the same? I can't stand iVisit because its bulky and messy - this is
    the program I need!!!!


    Apple, please let us use our USB cameras!!!! How hard can it be???
    iChatAV recognizes the camera since everytime I open the program both my
    ioxpert camera driver and USB camera is turned on...... ARGGHGHGHHH

    p.s. I will NEVER buy the new $149 iSight camera (or any $100 firewire
    camera for that matter, i might as well get a DV camcorder), so just
    please let this great piece of software become popular quickly with the
    300,000 usb cameras that are out there!!!!

    Apple is not using the Quicktime Sequence Grabber or VDIG for iChatAV.
    This means that even if you have VDIG/Drivers for your Video Device,
    you can't use it.

    So what they really want is you to buy there $129 FW camera ..
